Code of Conduct

The Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP) is committed to diversity, equity, and providing a safe and productive Peer Networks Program that fosters open dialogue and the free expression of ideas, free of harassment,  discrimination, and hostile conduct. SSP promotes equal opportunities and treatment for all participants, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, physical or mental ability, disability, physical appearance, ethnicity, religion, political affiliation, or nationality.

All participants are expected to treat others with respect and consideration, keeping relationships free of discrimination, or harassment; maintaining professional and ethical conduct at all times during the relationship.   

Participants shall not disclose, share, duplicate or distribute each other’s personal information without consent. Requests for confidentiality shall be honored. Participants shall represent themselves honestly and disclose any potential conflicts of interest to their groups. Exploitation of the relationship to seek an inappropriate advantage, financial or non-financial is strictly forbidden. This includes solicitation of products or services.
